Ottava Via // 1400 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216 (Corktown)

Ottava Via wins the patio battle with great food and a beautiful outdoor space that includes a bocce ball court. Enjoy a meal, a game and hang with friends old and new on a nice night.


Lumen // 1903 Grand River Ave, Detroit, MI 48226 (Downtown)

At Lumen you can pick your patio. Sit on the rooftop and take in the city from above or chill on ground level and check out what’s happening at Beacon Park.


The Whitney // 4421 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

When you’re feeling fancy make a date for the Whitney Gardens. The colorful oasis is a sweet escape inside the city and there’s live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.


Gold Cash Gold // 2100 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216 (Corktown)

The corner of Michigan Ave and Vernor Hwy has plenty of patio options but if we have to pick one GCG gets our vote. The hanging lights, living wall and outdoor bar just can’t be beat.


Marrow // 8044 Kercheval Ave, Detroit, MI 48214 (West Village)

A new addition to the patio scene, Marrow gives you the perfect excuse to get out of the CDB and into the Village.


Founders // 456 Charlotte St, Detroit, MI 48201 (Midtown)

Grab a brew, some food and sit back and relax on the patio. Bonus: Founders has outdoor fire pits and heat laps so you can enjoy eating outside in cooler weather too!


Parc // 800 Woodward Ave, Detroit, MI 48226 (Downtown)

Not your typical patio setting but when you can enjoy an award winning meal in the middle of Detroit’s most popular park – you know it has to make the list.


Second Best // 42 Watson St Detroit MI 48201 (Midtown)

The parties happen in Brush Park these days and Second Best offers a great spot to take in all the action.


Pie-Sci Pizza // 5163 Trumbull Avenue, Detroit, MI 48208 (Woodbridge)

Detroit has lots of options for pizza and Pie-Sci is one of our favorites. Make it a pizza party at the picnic table with some cards or a grab and go game.


La Dolce Vita // 17546 Woodward ave., Detroit, MI 48203

No patio list is complete without La Dolce Vita. Take a drive up Woodward to check out Detroit’s most recognized patio.
